SPONSORING IN THE RUHR
Your location is a mere dot on the surface of the planet. Even though it is home to over five million residents, highly liveable and attractive. It too suffers from a common phenomenon affecting almost every place around the world, including desirable places with just a few hundred thousand or more inhabitants.
Due to a shortage of qualified national professionals, the universal quest for international talent is ongoing and thus most likely affects your company. If your city lacks an attractive global image or enticing and comprehensive presentations, you are unable to control the whole process of recruiting staff.
The position, company and financials are meaningless to candidates if the factor of location fails to appeal. An alternative company will succeed and the candidate relocates to another city that is perceived to be a better fit. Your position remains unfilled and the consequences are both strategically damaging and costly.
Imagine taking command of the missing factor of your package. Help is at hand to present your location in the finest light to expats on the path to successful employee recruitment.
The Status Quo
Many attempts to engage expats fail when the prospective employee performs Initial research online and from afar. Browser bar results reveal expat-related topics that are unfiltered. They include social media where negative posts are omnipresent and only average soundbites of city information. A candidate’s prior falsely perceived or even missing impressions can add to the mix and the result is predictable.
Due to the lack of quality city presentations, candidates remain unaware of the full spectrum of benefits the location has to offer them. Companies miss out on the potential to encourage new careers and fulfilled lives. The research continues in a city elsewhere.
Through taking control, you can overcome obstacles and your location can be presented in the best light to expats. An excellent, crystal clear image representation of the city is supported by a plethora of impressions along with factual information and an abundance of relevant topics for expats.
Furthermore, ecosystems are strengthened for all stakeholders. A holistic concept interconnects local support systems and reveals all there is to know to enable expat integration over the long term. Your international employees and their families are empowered to feel at home and lead better lives. The likelihood of staying is increased, success rates improved and company pressures reduced.

It may come as a surprise of newly arrived expats that beaches can be found in the Ruhr Metropolis. Fine sand and shingle are ideal for walking, playing, relaxing and picnicking. People flock to enjoy spaces beside the rivers and lakes, especially on warm and sunny summer days. Photo © Ralph Lueger.
We stand in a foreign culture finding ourselves pointing, gesticulating and hoping to be understood. Many Germans speak at least some English. However, some expats relocating to the Ruhr Metropolis may wish to carry a few basic but helpful words with them for use in awkward moments.
A more effective, holistic approach is required to inspire expats to relocate, provide knowledge to support settling in and motivate them to remain in their new home. A simple tool with a quick overview to help spread the word through your company. No signup required!
